“My teacher (Sophia Furfine) was amazing. She always responded to my questions, and always helped me when I needed it. Even if it is for my python course:) She also taught me LaTeX and Asymptote, late after class was finished. Even though I knew some of the topics, I learned things I never knew before. I also learned new, and even better ways to solve problems! Even though some of the problems were challenging, I was taught how to solve them! I really enjoyed this class and had lots of fun! In each class you cover a lot of big topics in a short amount of time. I feel like the class was a little short [75 minutes], and I don't want it to be over so soon.”

"I'd like to sincerely express my appreciation of your help with [student].... The results are much more than what was expected from my end in many aspects. The courses certainly are both well-designed, but I have to acknowledge the fact that it is always the individual commitment and professionalism that ultimately differentiates the end results, just as you have demonstrated to [student] in the past months. I do hope what he learned from you is not only the knowledge itself but also the attitude behind it which to me would be the key in his long-term development.”
